Healthy Eyes In A Digital World

Your computer screen may be causing you more headaches than you know. On average, we sit in front of a computer screen more than six hours a day. It’d be rude of me to assume all of the Daily Infographic readers fall into this category, but if you happen to be one of those people, the keys to beat iris fatigue, headaches, and unfortunately, much more, are just a few glances away.
Constant use of computers and other electronic devices can lead to CVS, which stands for computer vision syndrome. It’s symptoms include blurry vision, headaches, dry eyes, and possibly long-term nearsightedness. There are many ways to decrease your chances of CVS though, so don’t fret too much. Adjusting the positioning of your computer, changing your brightness settings, and taking periodic breaks are just a few ways to beat CVS. For those of you who dream of the day bionic eyes make an appearance, you can rest safe knowing researchers are putting in numerous man hours to make it more than a just a possibility. [Via]

Story of a Mouse Trap

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.
What food might this contain?
The mouse wondered - - - he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.
Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning:
There is a mousetrap in the house!
There is a mousetrap in the house!
The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, 'Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.'
The mouse turned to the pig and told him, 'There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!'
The pig sympathized, but said, I am so very sorry, Mr.Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.'
The mouse turned to the cow and said, 'There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!'
The cow said, 'Wow, Mr. Mouse. I'm sorry for you, but it's no skin off my nose.'
So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer's mousetrap . . . alone.
That very night a sound was heard throughout the house -- like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey.
The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught.
The snake bit the farmer's wife.
The farmer rushed her to the hospital, and she returned home with a fever.
Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup's main ingredient.
But his wife's sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock.
To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.
The farmer's wife did not get well; she died.
So many people came for her funeral, the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.
The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.
So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn't concern you,
Remember ---- when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk.
We are all involved in this journey called life.
We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.
One of the best things to hold onto in this world is a FRIEND!!!


A young man, a student in one of the universities, was one day taking a
walk with a professor, who was commonly called the students' friend for
his kindness to those who waited on his instructions.

As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes,
which were supposed to belong to a poor man who was working in a field
close by, and who had nearly finished his day's work . . .

Student turned to the professor, saying: "Let us play the man a trick:
We will hide his shoes, and hide ourselves behind those bushes, and wait
to see his perplexity when he cannot find them ..."
"My young friend," answered the professor, "We should never amuse
ourselves at the expense of the poor . . . But you are rich, and may
give yourself a much greater pleasure by means of this poor man.

Put a coin in each shoe, and then we will hide ourselves and watch how
this affects him.." The student did so and they both placed themselves
behind the bushes close by. The poor man soon finished his work, and
came across the field to the path where he had left his coat and shoes .
. .
While putting on his coat he slipped his foot into one of his shoes, but
feeling something hard, he stooped down to feel what it was, and found
the coin. Astonishment and wonder were seen upon his countenance.
He gazed upon the coin, turned it around and looked at it again and

He then looked around him on all sides, but no person was to be seen. He
now put the money into his pocket, and proceeded to put on the other
shoe; but his surprise was doubled on finding the other coin . . .

His feelings overcame him . . . He fell upon his knees, looked up to
heaven and uttered aloud a fervent thanksgiving in which he spoke of his
wife, sick and helpless, and his children without bread, whom this
timely bounty, from some unknown hand, would save from perishing . . .

The student stood there deeply affected, and his eyes filled with tears.

"Now," said the professor, are you not much better pleased than if you
had played your intended trick?"
The youth replied, "You have taught me a lesson which I will never
forget. .. I feel now the truth of these words, which I never understood
before: "It's more blessed to give than to receive."

If you want happiness... .For a lifetime - help someone..

"There is only one happiness in life,To Love and be Loved"
